Our second child is due September 21st. 2008. We are expecting a girl.
Her last name will be Mendoza, but since I am not Mexican (the father is) I do not want anything too Spanish sounding (ie. Paloma, Marisol, etc.). However, I want it to go well with the last name.
Also, we named our first son a name which has a different pronounciation in English than in Spanish. So, I pronounce his name differently than his preschool teachers and friends. I do not want to repeat this problem where the pronounciation is different in each language.
Our list right now includes:
Ana Carolina, Naomi, Luciana, Lucia, Antonia, Annalisa, Daniela.
Thank you for your advice!
It looks like you have a really good list there. I especially like the way the A-ending ones sound with your surname. Let's go straight to the vote!
